Its richly interwoven tapestry of text, maps and illustrations brings sharply into focus our century’s main themes and underlying problems. Richard Overy’s compelling and analytical text takes the world from the pomp of Europe’s colonial heyday and the cataclysm of the First World War through the Great Depression, the Second World War and the Cold War to the uncertain stumblings of the New World Order. Special attention is paid to the themes and challenges which have faced us throughout the century — the environment, health, science, leisure and technology. With over 200 full-colour maps and more than 300 photographs, the book is a visual feast and a work of substantial scholarship.”Notes: Size: 4to Royal (32 x 25cm Approx.). 239 pages.

Soldier of Orange by Erik Hazelhoff Roelfzema (£17.00)Publisher: London: Hodder & Stoughton — 1972Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0340158441]Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. Edges of DJ somewhat ruffled with some tiny nicks. Price Clipped. Small mark to the edge of the rear endpaper, tiny number stamp to rear pastedown. Text bright and tight. A pleasant copy of an uncommon title.Description: Maps to the end papers. Illustrated with B&W photographs. Erik Hazelhoff was one of the heroes and architects of the Dutch resistance in World War II who lived to tell its story. Soon after the German invasion of his country he escaped to London only to run up against what felt like the fossilised rock of the Dutch government in exile based at Stratton House. But support came from Chester Square, the temporary home of Queen Wilhelmina, and ‘Contact Holland’ was born. Operating from London he himself made seventeen landings in the occupied Netherlands and set up a chain of agents, many of whom were eventually caught and shot. The author had some hair-raising and rudimentary flying lessons from no less an instructor than Prince Bernhard, and, despite indifferent eyesight, bluffed his way into the R.A.F. as a Pathfinder on Mosquitos.Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". 222 pages.

The Rise and Fall of Imperial Japan, 1894-1945 by Edited by S. L. Mayer (£16.00)Publisher: Bison Books — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0861241428]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little rubbed at the edges, short closed and tape-reinforced to the spine ends. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Reprint. [First: 1984 thus, previously published as ‘The Japanese War Machine’ in 1976] Maps to the endpapers. Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “In 1868, Japan emerged from feudalism and civil conflict as a comparatively undeveloped industrial state in an age of European imperialism in East Asia. Within a generation, Japan had risen to the ranks of the foremost industrial and military powers in the Western Pacific. A generation later, Japan had become the paramount power in East Asia, and her naval and air forces spread Japanese power across the Pacific. The formidable weapon built in the name of the Emperor swept across China and Manchuria; her air forces pummelled Pearl Harbor and Darwin; her armies marched to Singapore and the gates of India. Her navies seized some Aleutian islands and strafed the California coast. By 1942 the world had come to know the power of the most devastating force in the Pacific — the Japanese War Machine.

The force and power of the Japanese War Machine is told here by some of the world’s leading experts in guns, tanks, planes, and ships of World War II. The drama of Japan’s seizure of Manchuria, the take-over of the State by the Army, the invasion of China, the simultaneous attack on Malaya, Hawaii, the Philippines and the oil-rich Dutch East Indies is told in all the horror and shock the Japanese invader placed before Western eyes. The fall of Singapore and Hong Kong, the conquest of Burma and Indo-China took place within a hundred days. The flag of the Rising Sun ruled a maritime empire from the Russian border to the gates of Australia, from Burma to Midway.

But the strength of the Japanese War Machine depended on Japanese industrial power, which in the end, was no match for the United States and its Allies. The Japanese soldier, infused with the warrior code of Bushido fought hard and long in New Guinea’s jungles; as the struggle was brought closer to Japan’s home islands, the Japanese soldier fought on tenaciously in the Philippines and on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The air forces began suicide missions, thekamikaze, which drove into Allied aircraft, heroically and fanatically.. .but all too little, too late. The nuclear holocaust, which ended World War II, left a ruined Japan and a wrecked Japanese War Machine.

THE RISE AND FALL OF IMPERIAL JAPAN is the tragic and noble history of a gallant people led into a misguided war. The millions who suffered in Asia and the Pacific in the wake of the Japanese War Machine bear silent tribute to its folly.”

DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: From the cover: “Much has been written about D-Day, the Allied landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944. But far less is known about the planning and strategic arguments that occurred on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as those that governed German military thinking on the likelihood, and projected defence, of an Allied invasion of Festung Europa. Part of the fascination of the whole story is the hypothetical questions which can be asked but which, because history can never be replayed, can never be fully answered; Would not Vienna have been a better strategic target than Paris? And would not the Mediterranean have provided an easier approach than the heavily fortified and defended English Channel coast?Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine.

Sharpe's havoc : Richard Sharpe and the campaign in Northern Portugal, Spring 1809 by Bernard Cornwell (£14.00)Publisher: HarperCollins — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0007120109]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Leans very slightly.Description: Jacket illustration: The Battle of Fuentes d’Onoro, 1811. Illustrated by way of: Maps [1];

From the cover: “It is the spring of 1809 and a small British army is stationed in Lisbon when Marshal Soult begins the French invasion of northern Portugal. No one knows whether the British will fight or leave, but there is little choice for Lieutenant Richard Sharpe and his squad of riflemen, who are sent into the beleaguered city of Oporto to rescue a British mother and daughter who have chosen to stay rather than flee southwards. But what seems like a straightforward mission becomes tangled in betrayal when Kate Savage disappears.

Sharpe, with Sergeant Patrick Harper and a score of riflemen, is cut off in the city when the bridge over the river Douro is broken. They join forces with a group of fugitive Portuguese soldiers and try to fight their way back to the British lines, but their orders are overridden by a mysterious English officer, who instructs them to remain in northern Portugal. Colonel Christopher excels in high diplomacy and low cunning, and his activities lead Sharpe and his riflemen into treacherous danger.

While the French are consolidating their hold on the north of the country, Sir Arthur Wellesley, the future Duke of Wellington, arrives to take command in the south. He immediately mounts his own counter-attack in a brilliant campaign that will rout the French. Sharpe becomes the hunter instead of the hunted and seizes the chance to rescue the missing Kate Savage and pursue the man who thought to sacrifice Sharpe and his riflemen for his own ambition. Amidst the wreckage of a defeated army, in the storm lashed hills of the Portuguese frontier, Sharpe takes a terrible revenge.

Sharpe’s Havoc is a classic Sharpe story, a return to Portugal with Richard Sharpe in fighting form in the company of Sergeant Patrick Harper, Captain Hogan and Sharpe’s beloved Greenjackets.”

Storming Eagles: German Airborne Forces in World War Two by James Lucas (£14.00)Publisher: Arms & Armour Press — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0853688796]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “The pilot throttled back — it would not be long now. The light on the bulkhead showed red. It was the signal “make ready!” Two minutes to go. The ‘dispatcher walked along the body of the machine checking that each man’s static line was firmly fixed to the jump wire. By the time he had completed his task the bulkhead light had changed to green. “Ready to jump!” and we moved forward to the exit door on the port side of the aircraft. Two of the Ju crew has already removed the door, and we could feel the air blowing in. Our sergeant would be the first to jump. He stood braced in the doorway looking slightly upwards as per the drill book. He would not have seen that the light on the bulkhead had changed to white, but at the sound of the klaxon horn he flung himself forward and out of the machine, to be followed by the rest of us in quick succession. When each man jumped the Junkers bounced upwards a little in the air as the aircraft load was lightened…

In that exclusive number of elite German fighting formations of the Second World War, the paratroops rank high. During the blitzkrieg of 1940, they spearheaded the attack, dropping from the air to sieze key points — and demonstrating that a new dimension had been added to the science of war.

Their most spectacular success was the invasion and capture of Crete in May 1941. But the cost was terrible: one in four of the paratroopers who dropped on to the island perished. For the rest of the war the parachute troops were used almost exclusively in a ground role. They remained, however, an elite, justifying again and again their great reputation for courage and hard fighting in Russia, North Africa and in Italy. Their dogged defence of Monte Cassino demonstrated their prowess as street fighting specialists; despite intensive bombing, bombardment and infantry assault, they held on to the monastery for more than three months, halting the Allied advance and withdrawing only when the position had been outflanked.

This book provides the first major account of these legendary soldiers, illustrated throughout with photographs collected from a wide range of sources. The author, James Lucas, has researched deep into Allied and captured German archives, and has interviewed many of the leading members of the Fallschirmjaeger units and formations who survived the war.”

Born in the reign of Queen Victoria, all have lived as adults through the Depression, the Second World War and the Millennium. But for these men, the Great War was the defining period of their lives. Some of them, mere boys at the outbreak, lied about their ages to join up. They saw action in the trenches, at sea and in the fledgling air services.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼".

The Battle of the Atlantic: How the Allies Won the War by Jonathan Dimbleby (£12.50)Publisher: London: Viking — 2015Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 9780241186602]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Maps [6];

From the cover: “The Battle of the Atlantic was crucial to the Allied victory in the Second World War. If the German U-boats had prevailed, the maritime artery across the Atlantic would have been severed. Britain would have been forced to submit to the Nazis. It would have been impossible to mount the invasion of Europe in June 1944: there would have been no D-Day.

When we contemplate the great struggles of 1939-45, the Blitz, El Alamein, Stalingrad, Arnhem and Berlin invariably come to mind. Yet without the defeat of the U-boats in the Atlantic, those battles could not have been fought, let alone won. In the words of Winston Churchill: The Battle of the Atlantic was the dominating factor all through the war… everything happening elsewhere, on land, at sea, or in the air, depended ultimately on its outcome.

Interweaving the stories of those on both sides who fought at sea with those of their political and military leaders, Jonathan Dimbleby creates a thrilling narrative that uniquely places the campaign in its global context. Challenging conventional wisdom on the role of Intelligence and on Churchill’s bombing campaign, The Battle of the Atlantic tells the story of the decisions that led to victory, and the horror and humanity of life on those perilous seas.

It is a gripping tale that transforms our understanding of the Second World War.”

Zulu Vanquished: The Destruction of the Zulu Kingdom by Ron Lock & Peter Quantrill (£12.50)Publisher: Greenhill Books — 2005Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1853676608]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: Jacket illustration: The Zulu attack having failed, mounted infantry and colonial horsemen pursue the beaten enemy. (Illustrated London News). Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “The Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 has become synonymous with Britain’s humiliating defeat at Isandlwana and the heroic defence of Rorke’s Drift. But these celebrated actions were only part of a campaign that lasted for more than six months and resulted in the Zulu kingdom’s destruction. Zulu Vanquished explores the events that not only led to the initial British defeat at Isandlwana but allowed Chelmsford the opportunity to launch his second invasion, which concluded with the eventual torching of the Zulu capital of oNdini on the Ulundi plain.

Founded on a wealth of first-hand accounts, some published for the first time, as well as the authors’ intimate knowledge of the history and terrain of Zululand, this book is a groundbreaking work that sheds light on the wider Anglo-Zulu conflict and will prove indispensable for scholars and enthusiasts alike.”

British Battles: The Front Lines of History in Colour Photographs by Ken & Denise Guest (£11.50)Publisher: HarperCollins — 2002Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 9780007651269]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “The Battle of Culloden in 1746 was the last full-scale land battle to be fought on British soil. While almost every other European country has become a battleground since then, for the last 250 years Britain has been spared the horrors of invasion and occupation. Yet all over England and Scotland there are traces of our brutal past. There are tangible signs like monuments to the dead or the bullet holes in the door of Alton church. Local place names like Bloody Meadow keep alive the memory of the hideous slaughter that followed the defeat of several medieval armies.

In 1995 English Heritage published a register of battlefields, focusing attention on 44 sites. Intended to provide guidance for those involved in conservation, the register identifies the geographical location and highlights key features which deserve special care because of their historic significance. British Battles includes all of these historically important engagements and, employing the same criteria, covers the ten greatest battles in Scotland from Stirling Bridge and the war against Edward I to Culloden and the defeat of the Jacobite cause.

British Battles is unlike all previous accounts of the battles that shaped our history. By combining eyewitness descriptions with the researches of modern re-enactors, British Battles reveals what it was like for the ordinary soldiers. Over the course of seven centuries of warfare, weapons and tactics changed considerably. But for the men in the frontline, and the women and children often accompanying an army into battle, the experience was disagreeably similar: long marches over dirt roads, bad weather, illness and disease; the terror of close quarter battle and the agonising medical treatment that was the only hope of survival for the wounded..”
